Rally for Justice

Please join the NAACP on Tuesday, July 24th, 1:00 pm, on the front steps of the State Capitol!

This is a call for direct action. We need to actively voice our opposition to the new Voter ID law as well as support the NAACP and others in their suit challenging this unjust law.

This is a statewide initiative and the NAACP would like to see Pennsylvania well represented. Therefore, be prepared to hold up the blood stained banner for your church, union, fraternity, sorority, or organization in our efforts to stamp out these attacks on our voting rights.

Bishop A. E. Sullivan, President Interdenominational Ministers Conference
PA Senator Daylin Leach
